List of stories within One Thousand and One Nights

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the stories in Richard Francis Burton's translation of One Thousand and One Nights. Burton's first ten volumes—which he called The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night—were published in 1885. His Supplemental Nights were published between 1886 and 1888 as six volumes. Later pirate copies split the very large third volume into two volumes. The nights are in the style of stories within stories, and the frame story is The Story Of King Shahryar of Persia and His Brother or The Story Of King Shahryar and Queen Shahrazad, in which Shahrazad tells tales to her husband Shahryar.

NOTE: The numbers in parentheses indicate that the night in question began (and the previous night ended) during the tale indicated.
